The Spanish Association of Architecture Institutes (CSCAE) has bestowed the 2017 National Award for Architecture on two buildings on equal footing: the Royal Collections Museum in Madrid by Mansilla and Tuñón, and the Convention Center and Hotel in Palma de Mallorca by Francisco Mangado. Given every two years since 1993, the prize was instituted as recognition for singular works carried out in Spain.
